    That is my thought as well. In 35mm, I find 400 too grainy most of the time, unless you are going for that look. For medium format 400 speed makes life a lot easier since the lenses are slower and you need some depth of field.

    My biggest problem is remembering what kind of film I have in each camera.

    Tape the end of the film box to the back of your camera.
    That is a trick we used a LONG time ago.
    Then someone made a stick-on pouch that you would slip the end of the film box into. I don't know if they still sell this pouch.

    Black camera for day, chrome camera for night..

    Since I use OM-1 and OM-2 I leave the flash shoe off my day camera and the night camera has the flash shoe on it.

    There's a system for everyone.

    100
    I shoot 400 speed almost all the time. And the only time I shoot a slower film like FP4 is when I want longer exposure times shot on a tripod. I often use filters during the day, and in bright sunny condition with a polarizer and orange filter over the lens 3 stops are absorbed, so I may be shooting at f/8 at 1/60th of a second hand held. This could never be done with a 100 speed film. The only time I can get away with shooting a 100 speed handheld is when I'm shooting the lens near wide open. But then again my fastest lens is f/4. If I were you I'd keep shooting the 400 speed for everyday stuff and find a faster film for inside the bars like Delta 3200.
